Frequently asked questions about SkyscannerBlack Friday travel deals
What can we expect from Skyscanner's Black Friday deals?
This year Skyscanner has up to 30% off flights to destinations around the world. Some of the best-priced fares you can book are Los Angeles from $799 return, Fiji from $459 return, Tokyo from $654 return and Asia from $135 each way.
How do Skyscanner's deals compare to other brands?
As Skyscanner is an aggregator and not a travel agent itself, its deals are based on those on other sites.Deals can come from anywhere. For example, those mentioned above are from Trip.com
and Scoot. What's handy about this is that Skyscanner does the work for us, trawling through all the sites - even ones you've never heard of - to nab you the best price.
Because of this the deals available on Skyscanner are only as good as the brands it features.
Where you might find better is with brands Skyscanner doesn't work directly with. Cebu Pacific is one of these brands. While Skyscanner's search pulls up Cebu Pacific's flights they always lead to other booking sites such as Trip.com or Kiwi.com. In these instances you may find booknig direct gives you a better deal.
Are Black Friday deals really cheaper?
As one of the biggest sales events on the calendar you'll find many airlines opting in to offer big savings over Black Friday (29 November) and Cyber Monday (2 December).
In this year's Black Fridays deals we've seen domestic flights from $39 each way and international flights from $115 each way on budget airlines such as Jetstar. Full-service airlines like Virgin Australia are offering flights to the USA from $899 return.
While Skyscanner's deals are cheap they might not be the cheapest you'll see in the year. Not all airlines participate in Black Friday, either. This year Qatar and Scoot for example have opted out of offering a specific Black Friday sale, however will be running their own sales over the Black Friday period.
Do flights get cheaper on Cyber Monday?
Unlike online retailers, airlines don't often change their deals day-by-day. Instead, they're more prone to either offer their sale on Black Friday only or extend it from Friday until Cyber Monday.With this in mind, prices are more likely to increase by Cyber Monday as the availability of the lowest fares decreases.
As a general rule of thumb, if you're after the cheapest price, the earlier you book the better.
